Named Spanish World Music Artist of the Year 2010 (World Music Charts Europe) for her debut, “Niña pez”(2009).
In 2012 her second recording, “Primero amarillo después malva”, earned raves in the United States and Latin America from PEOPLE Magazine and NPR’s “The World.” 2013 saw her third recording, “Garnatiyya”, and praised on CNN for release of an album based on traditional Spanish songs compiled by poet Federico García Lorca, called “Por el agua de Granada: Cancionero Lorquiano”.
Bello is a storyteller, a cultural voyager and a dancer-vocalist. On stage she is an open and charismatic presence, with a meticulous intelligence.
All her songs are original and represent world music, or fusion, of the best, most unforced sort, which, rather than poaching on other cultures, recuperates and acknowledges roots and sources already present and influential in one’s own.
